Jade Jones Pavilion in Flint is getting involved in a campaign to help raise money for a local school.

The campaign is called “Let’s Move for a Better World”, which is a global campaign to fight obesity and sedentary lifestyles. The goal is to engage the community to come and “donate” their physical activity to help the local community and embrace a healthier lifestyle.

This is the second year that the centre has participated and they have chosen Maes Hyfryd as they already have a close relationship with the school. Pupils visit the centre several times each week, including two gym sessions where fitness staff provide them with a group training session.

Flintshire County Council’s Alan Duppa, organiser of the event, said:

“It’s clear the pupils love coming to the gym as there is always lots of laughter and they really benefit from the physical activity. It is always a pleasure to work with the students of Maes Hyfryd. This is why we feel it would be brilliant if Maes Hyfryd could win the “prizes”. If we can make 3 million moves (as measured by the equipment), the school will win a full ARKE set – a full package workout set, perfect for children as it is colour coded, involves group work and is lots of fun.”

The challenge begins on 13 March and will run for 18 days until the end of March.
